HSI Standards

The following links provide information on standards used within the HSI community:

Coast Guard Staffing Logic and Manpower Requirements Manual, Volume 1
This manual provides the doctrinal framework for the manpower requirements determination (MRD) Enterprise for both Headquarters and the field. It outlines the core assumptions and fundamental principles that should be in place for the Enterprise to be truly systemic and to operate both effectively and efficiently. Staffing Logic and Manpower Requirements Manual

Department of Defense Design Criteria Standard Human Engineering (MIL-STD-1472G)

MIL-STD-1472G establishes general human engineering design criteria, principles, and practices to be applied in the design of systems, equipment, and facilities. MIL-STD-1472G

Department of Defense Standard Practice System Safety (MIL-STD-882E)
This system safety standard practice identifies the Department of Defense (DoD) Systems Engineering (SE) approach to eliminating hazards, where possible, and minimizing risks where those hazards cannot be eliminated. DoD Instruction (DoDI) 5000.02 defines the risk acceptance authorities. MIL-STD-882E

EverySpec provides free access to over 50,000 Military, DoD, Federal, NASA, DOE, and Government specifications, standards, handbooks, and publications. http://everyspec.com/

Federal Aviation Administration System Safety Handbook
The purpose of this handbook is to provide instructions on how to perform system safety engineering and management for FAA personnel involved in system safety activities, including FAA contractor management, engineering, safety specialists, team members on Integrated Product Development System (IPDS) teams, analysts and personnel throughout FAA regions, centers, facilities, and any other entities involved in aviation operations.  FAA System Safety Handbook

Human Factors Design Standards (HFDS) (HF-STD-001)
The Human Factors Design Standard (HFDS) provides reference information to assist in the selection, analysis, design, development, and evaluation of new and modified Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) systems and equipment. This document is based largely on the 1996 Human Factors Design Guide (HFDG) produced by the FAA in 1996.  HF-STD-001

Joint Software Systems Safety Handbook
The purpose of the Handbook is to provide management and engineering guidelines to achieve a reasonable level of assurance that the software will execute within the system context with an acceptable level of safety risk. This Handbook is both a reference document and management tool for aiding managers and engineers at all levels in any Government or industrial organization. Joint Software System Safety Handbook

Major Systems Acquisition Manual (MSAM), COMDTINST M5000.10 (series)
The MSAM provides a disciplined project management approach to the acquisition of major assets and systems and defines the policies and procedures for project managers and their staffs to plan, coordinate, and execute major systems acquisitions projects to include the requirements of human systems integration practitioners. MSAM

NASA Man-System Integration Standards
The NASA Man-System Integration Standards provides specific user information to ensure proper integration of human-systems interface requirements with those of other aerospace disciplines. http://msis.jsc.nasa.gov/

NASA System Safety Handbook, VOL 1
The purpose of Volume 1 of the NASA System Safety Handbook is to present the overall framework for System Safety and to provide the general concepts needed to implement the framework. The treatment addresses activities throughout the system life cycle to assure that the system meets safety performance requirements and is as safe as reasonably practicable. System Safety Handbook

ASTM International
ASTM International is a globally recognized leader in the development and delivery of international voluntary consensus standards used around the world to improve product quality, enhance safety, facilitate market access and trade, and build consumer confidence. http://www.astm.org/Standards/F1337.htm
